Management lecturer, Mr Paul Tai-hing met with Olive Leaf Foundation representatives on Friday the 20th of May, to discuss the possibility of a partnership between the department and the foundation.

This initiative was brought about after a group of 3rd year management students selected the organisation as part of a community up-liftment project given to them by Mr Tai– Hing, The Olive Leaf Foundation, which is situated in Walmer,, provides social support for children and caregivers in the area. The foundation is, however, at a threat of being closed down as funding from the US government has been withdrawn. The partnership would involve an annual challenge given to students to come up with creative ways to help the foundation, and would also involve staff teaching basic management skills to caregivers.
